Fruit fruit fruit

6 10 2014

I have just been to the small shop out of Jerry’s compound to buy something to eat and if course I focused in the wonderful South East Asian fruit offer:

When I saw the mangosteen and the dimensions of the papaya I could not stop myself. One dragon fruit later I found, still in the fruit session, something I had never seen before (or maybe once in China) and went for it as well:

One box of cookies filled with dates and a couple of drink juices I went to pay and this makes me enjoy this country even more:

FUNNY THING OF THE DAY – My first surprise when I arrived in Jakarta was that here they drive on the left side, like in British countries and Japan. Quite a surprise since I can’t recall a British occupation of the area.

Today it is Qixi festival, the equivalent of Chinese S. Valentine and a fruit vendor got out with a brilliant funny sexy idea:

sexy Valentine

They call them “Ripe Fruit” (蜜桃成熟時) and they have changed the life of the guy that made them, and patented them!





Bring the alcohol back!!

31 05 2014

After seeing people drinking it in more than one occasion I have decided to try the “famous” Vita-malz, alcohol free malt beer.

Why?? Why??? why on earth was I so foolish?

Utterly disgusting taste! I’m going to sort of finish it just because I paid for it (at a kiosk, not in a bar!!).

Supposed to be healthy?? Bleah!! Give me the alcohol please!!

Lucky mine was later, unlucky I almost ran a very long distance in this huge airport of Frankfurt. And it’s warm today… and feeling a bit the good practice of the weekend!!

Now it should be ok and I hope the people taking care if the luggage were more awake than me!!!





Veronica

17 05 2014

Long time I don’t find something funny worth mentioning.

This goes in the category of funny if you don’t wear my shoes.

Veronica is the name of both a radio station and a tv channel here in the Netherlands.

At work we usually listen to that radio station because it has the least repetitive selection and also good quality/mix of genres.

At home I often watch the tv channel since it has a very good ofer of action movies and tv-series.

My typical luck is that Veronika is also the chosen German name of my ex, who recently kicked me out of her life since she now is seeking something new and more exciting…

Apparently, at work, at home, I am chased by Veronicas….. Wrong ones?? ;-)
